Open: Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday - 7:15-8:00 a.m.

History of Strength Club: Osceola Strength Club was started in the spring of 1985. It has been 35 years in existence! The idea of strength club was to have a "total strength program" that will benefit the athlete or the regular student. Also the program is designed to create a FAMILY atmosphere with our student athletes. It doesn't matter what sport you are in or even if you are in a sport--we lift together as one. ONE designed weightlifting program for ALL Osceola student/athletes. We also have a time where we will test and compete during the spring (around March). We will test in Bench, Squat, Clean and various other agility/speed tests. This test/competition is known as the Iron Man/Woman contest (on the board in the weight room). You have the opportunity to get your name on the board if you are the strongest in your division. You also have the opportunity to earn a medal if you finish in the top three in your division.

Iron Man & Iron Woman Competition

We had 19 students participate in the 2015 Osceola Iron Man/Woman Competition. It is the 30th year anniversary of the Osceola Strength Club and the Iron Man/Woman or Lift-a-thon competition. The Club was created by former football coach Jeff Floyd in 1985. We had lift-a-thons to raise money for equipment as well as competing against each other. It has made a big impact on the school as the sports programs have excelled and our fitness curriculum has improved. The competition is composed of three main lifts: Bench, Squat , and Power Clean. There are different divisions based on grade and body weight to organize the competition levels. These 3 lifts were introduced back in 1985 to Osceola High School and it has been a tradition ever sense!

Here are the winners of each division. (Not all divisions were filled).
